Special needs passengers
Whatever your special needs, Ravn Alaska wants your trip to be enjoyable. If you have any special requirements, you can let us know by calling 800-866-8394.
Children traveling alone:
Ravn Alaska offers Unaccompanied Minor service on all of our flights. This service includes controlled custody release, weather forecasting, onboard briefings and supervised connecting flight transfers as part of our commitment of service. Age and transfer requirements vary, so please contact Ravn Alaska reservations at 800-866-8394.
Ravn Alaska provides courtesy wheelchair service at all of our locations to assist you in boarding and exiting the aircraft. Specially designed aisle chairs are also available for easy access to your seat, along with fold up arm rests on some seats. Seating for special needs passengers may be restricted by FAA regulations from emergency exit seating based on the ability of the person to open and operate an emergency exit. In order to best accommodate your needs, please request wheelchair service during check in.
When small enough, mobility devices such as canes and walkers can be taken onboard the aircraft with you. If such a device cannot be stowed safely in the cabin, it will be tagged, placed in the cargo hold and returned to you promptly at your final stop.
Electric wheelchairs must be checked as baggage. Since batteries contain corrosive materials, they need to be removed and boxed for additional passenger safety. Providing written assembly instructions and allowing extra time at the gate will help us depart on schedule.
Ravn Alaska currently does not offer oxygen in flight. We do however allow certain personal oxygen concentrators. For more information call us at 800-866-8394 or 907-266-8394 in Anchorage.
Ravn Alaska currently does not have appropriate equipment to accommodate stretcher patients.
Trained and qualified seeing eye and auditory canines traveling with their masters are welcome onboard our aircraft. There is no charge for this service, and such animals are not required to be in kennels due to the nature of their work and training.
Flight delays and cancellations
Whether in the air or on the ground, Ravn Alaska will provide up-to-the-minute and accurate information available during a delay, cancellation or flight diversion. We will work to efficiently make decisions behind the scenes to minimize your delay and get you to your destination as soon as possible. Whenever possible, we’ll re-book you on the next available flight. In some cases we will reroute you on other airlines if the cancellation is of any direct fault of Ravn Alaska.
When planning a trip, it is wise to purchase all travel on the same ticket. If your flight is delayed or canceled, and all affected flight segments are on one ticket, interline rules permit us to reroute you on other airlines. If you are traveling on more than one ticket, we will be happy to contact another airline on your behalf, but are unable to guarantee your connecting travel on other airlines. If the delay has altered your plans, we will gladly reschedule your flight for another day or refund your ticket free of penalty if you choose not to travel.
If a mechanical delay causes you to need to overnight in one of our cities, please be sure to check in with our ticket agents before leaving the airport. If possible, they will book you on an earlier flight or offer you a hotel voucher. This does not qualify for weather delays.
When your flight delay or cancellation involves weather, we will do all possible to reroute you. If a flight cancellation means you have to overnight in one of the communities we serve, we will assist you to the extent possible, however, Ravn Alaska is not liable for expenses incurred such as meals, hotels and local transportation. If your ticket is non-refundable, we are happy to offer a full refund without penalties if we are not able to get you to your final destination.
In the event of an extended delay, Ravn Alaska will, at a minimum, provide updates for your scheduled departure at least every 30 minutes or when something changes, whichever comes first. If we are aware of a delay exceeding 60 minutes, the aircraft will not be boarded until the flight can depart. If the aircraft has already been boarded, and the delay exceeds 60 minutes, all efforts will be made to return to the terminal. If this is not possible, in-flight amenities such as snack, beverage and lavatory service will be made available.
Overbooking of flights
Ravn Alaska overbooks flights because people with reservations often do not show up. Whenever a flight is overbooked and more passengers show up than we have seats, we will solicit volunteers to give up their seats. The selection of volunteers is at our discretion. If your seat is not needed, you will be boarded on your original flight. If your seat is needed, you will be given a voucher good for a free Ravn Alaska round trip ticket and you will be booked on the next available flight.
Involuntary denied boarding:
Situations may arise when the weight of passengers and bags who have checked in, plus the addition of fuel loads that vary with weather may cause the maximum allowed weight of the aircraft to be reached before all passengers have been boarded. Since these events are not within the control of Ravn, denied boarding compensation may not be offered. Though extremely rare, under these circumstances, the last customer(s) to check in will be denied boarding. A free round trip ticket may be provided to such passengers, and we will make every effort to accommodate you on the next available flight. Depending on the circumstances, we may provide lodging and meals at our discretion, though we are not obligated to do so.
Qualifying for compensation:
To qualify for denied boarding compensation of any kind, you must be checked in at least 30 minutes prior to departure on domestic and international flights. Customers who are unable to meet check-in time requirements are not eligible for denied boarding compensation but can stand by for later flights that same day at no charge. To ensure for on-time departures, our aircraft doors will close at 10 minutes prior to scheduled departure.
Reconfirming when your plans change
If you decide to change your travel plans, please let us know so we can protect your reservation. If you do not show for your flight, the reservations system automatically cancels the remainder of your itinerary. This is based on the logic that if you did not fly on one leg of your trip, you can’t be in the departure city of your next leg. Remember to always reconfirm your reservations 24 hours prior to your scheduled departure.
Same Day Flight Change Program
With our Same Day Flight Change Program, you can get a confirmed seat for same-day flight changes for only $25. This program is subject to seat availability.
You may request a Same Day Confirmed Flight Change with a ticket agent at the Ravn Alaska station. You must be there to check in, one hour prior to the flight’s scheduled departure and up to 6 hours before the desired flight leaves. For example, if you are scheduled to leave on the 10 p.m. flight, and you would like to leave on the 2 p.m. flight, you may request your change as early as 8 a.m.
In the event you have missed your originally scheduled flight a full ticket reissue (fare difference plus fees) applies.
To qualify for the $25 Same Day Confirmed Flight Change Program:
- You must be holding confirmed reservations and tickets for flights operated by Ravn Alaska. This includes tickets booked with FlyAway Rewards points.
- You must keep the routing identical – meaning the same origin, destination and any possible connection cities.
- Your new desired flight must depart on the same calendar day as your originally scheduled flight.
If your ticket is booked with the following exemptions, you qualify for the Same Day Confirmed Flight Change program free of charge:
- FlyAway Rewards Gold Tier Members
- FlyAway Rewards Silver Tier Members
- Your ticket was purchased as a fully-refundable ticket
Returning your checked luggage
Ravn Alaska will make every reasonable effort to return your checked baggage within 24 hours when delayed. Ravn will also attempt to contact any customer whose unclaimed, unchecked luggage contains a name and address or telephone number. Due to flight availability and U.S. customs requirements, international bags may require more than 24 hours to return to the customer. In this case, a Ravn representative will provide the best available information as to the location and time of return of the baggage. Please note that your claim for loss must be made within four hours of arrival at your final destination. For information concerning lost or delayed luggage, contact the local airport you have arrived in.
Placing value on your checked luggage
Ravn Alaska will reimburse you up to $1,250 for damage or loss to non-excluded items checked on an Ravn flight. For baggage transferred to a jetcarrier, a maximum value of $2,500 applies. Ravn Alaska supports the recent Department of Transportation’s proposed increase in domestic baggage liability limitation, and once the increase is approved, Ravn will immediately implement the increase. If the value of your non-excluded checked items exceeds $1,250, excess valuation can be declared at the time of check-in and purchased for $1 per every $100 dollars of declared value.
Many items are excluded from coverage because they are not suitable for checked luggage (computers, cameras, binoculars, valuable jewelry, glass items, medication, etc.). Such items are listed on the inside of your ticket jacket and on our website or can be obtained over the phone with a Reservations agent. If your exempt items are too large to carry onboard with you, you may want to ship via Ravn Alaska air cargo.
